laying out his wish list for a sweeping bill on gun control. even through what would ronald reagan do reference for good measure. plus more on the bombshell report that te'o's girlfriend that inspired him did not, in fact, exist. we'll break down all the details but lance armstrong is the sports story the year and it's bizarre. first let's get to the news live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. we begin this morning with gun violence in america. president obama planning to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that most
in the campaign. and he won tax increases for the top 1%. that's a big deal to him. >> okay. 1985 ronald reagan comes up. he says exactly the opposite. exactly the opposite of barack obama reagan says the government's the problem. we ought to get the government out of the way and unleash the american people who will return the nation to prosperity. reagan very popular president among americans remains so. personally, personally barack obama very popular. i think his personal rate is around 59%. job approval 52. how can this country in the space of, what, almost 30 years, change so dramatically in our philosophy? >> well, first of all, obama today did say that it's a fiction to believe that government alone can solve all of the problems. so he is taking somewhat of a middle course now. if you look at that speech, i mean, it's an odd speech he just threw out things. there is kind of no coherent plan and, again, i think the missed opportunity was to say to the american public and the world, look, this is where i'm going. this is what matters. one, two, three. these are the things i'm going to do.
arises. this was answering ronald reagan from 32 years ago. his whole philosophy was intensively individualistic. president obama answered that today. and he said an old speech writers device. to repeat again and again, we the people, we the people. the first three words of our founding document. he embraces thathe said to ronald reagan, we're stronger together. and i thought it was powerful but philosophical. i thought this was obama at his best. >> i saw a lot of tweets from republicans saying this was a call for big government that he didn't reach out enough. >> there was partisanship. it is hard to deny when he directly rebuked the gop by saying we are not a country of takers. by defending the government level of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisan at all. >> this was not a speech
to fundamentally implement them, it would be illegal to try to implement it. and ronald reagan discovered in the iran-contra process, the power of congress to say you can't spend the money, is 100%-- remember, the first public speaker in 40 years, we met the contract, we closed the government twice, for six days in november and 21 days in december and january of 1995-1996. it was after we closed it that bill clinton came to the capitol and said to the state of the union the era of big government is over. he didn't do that because he got there himself. he did that because he recognized that a congress that was determined to shrink government was changing the terms of his presidency. >> mike: i am 'm going to get t some of the moments of almost 20 years ago and talk about today. and talk about the president as gun control plan, it wouldn't be the first time that washington has banned so-called assault weapons. back when the speaker was in office in 1994, congress passed a similar law. coming up, i'm going to ask newt gingrich about how he felt about the ban then, and then compare it with th

amendment, made reference to the creator, invoked the name of ronald reagan, and still comes out of the thing as a socialist who -- >> a secret muslim socialist who wants to take your guns. >> perhaps the most disturbing trend since the newtown shootings has been the rise of conspiracy theorists who claim the whole thing was a hoax, part of an elaborate plan by the government to provoke enough anger to warrant rounding up your guns. websites, blogs, youtube videos have attacked the veracity of officials and official accounts of tragedy. they allege many of the people were actually actors. that the parents didn't show enough emotion and must be in the conspiracy. some claim if the shooting actually happened, there must have been more than one shooter and the government was involved somehow. one 30-minute truther video on youtube has been viewed over 10 million times, and it's not just the loons on the internet. james tracy is a tenured professor at florida atlantic university. take a look at what he wrote on his blog. while it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquir
for something, president roosevelt, ronald reagan in 1981 in his first inaugural, they were unafraid. they said a number of things that not every american would agree with and as a result people had a clear sense of who they were and where they wanted to lead us. >> how much work goes into this speech? >> i think this is a speech that's clearly unlike any other, and it may well be that president obama or other presidents go into it with a very clear understanding of what they want to do, but rarely will every line be scrutinized in a way that an inaugural address will be. >> you had some favorites and you mentioned roosevelt as one of them. let's take a listen. >> nameless unreasoning, unjustified terror which parolizes needed efforts to convert retreats. >> you mentioned how important the lines are. jfk had a line. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. what might be the line or the idea or the context of the line in obama's speech president obama's speech. >> maybe i'll talk about the context. if i had the laptop an
. and this is the 7th time, scott, on a sunday the president has taken the oath of office. the last time ronald reagan in 1985. scott. >> pelley: the robinson family, of course is the family of michelle obama. her grandmother originally owned this bible. this is the blue room. there is the chief justice of the united states. and we expect to see the president very shortly. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i barack obama hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. the constitution of the united states. >> the correspondence steution of the united states. >> so help you god. me god. congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice. thank you so much. ( applause ) thank you, sir. >> i did it. all right. thank you everybody. >> pelley: just as simple as that the president with the first family in the blue ro
or support the second amendment, well, that would suggest the same of ronald reagan, of antonin scalia, of clarence thomas, of justice roberts, of samuel alito, all of these hardcore conservatives who have said that the second amendment is not about protecting somebody's right to have military-style assault weapons. >> so the question is, you've got the power of the nra versus the power of the emotional force, richard, that you were talking about. and kelly, the president outlined 23 executive orders. tell us about those. but first, what do you make and what are you hearing on capitol hill about the possibility of this legislation as it stands, as he presented it, going through? >> reporter: well, one of the things i think we really have to watch are senate democrats because we know that the house, run by republicans, is not going to jump to take any specific action. speaker boehner's office says they're going to wait and see, what does the senate do and then consider it. so that's sort of a real signal that there won't be any action on the house side. so if you look at senate democrat
the states. the states created the federal government. >>> that was ronald reagan on january 20th 1981. i remember watching that with my father. my dad just kept saying so much that my mom finally said george, shut up i heard it the first time. my dad kept saying if he lives long enough, he'll change the country and the world. he was right. that's what's so exciting about these days mika. so special. i remember lying in a fetal position on the floor after bill clinton won in 1992. >> that was a special day. >> thinking my world had come to an end. i just -- i loathed the guy. but i remember watching him deliver the inaugural address. just for a split second i said maybe, maybe -- and i think that's the magic of every inauguration. >> in all your years, you've learned to love him. >> i wouldn't go that far. >> oh yes, you would. >> we like each other. >> you should see them together at the clinton global initiative. makes me want to puke. welcome back to a special edition of "morning joe." >> i'm trying to be upbeat here. hope springs eternal on this day. >> it sure does. lo
saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix the economy. create jobs. then there's stop spending. and then of course probably the most important that he will talk about tomorrow, compromise, work together. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let me bring in the rest of our roundtable here. joe scarborough is here from msnbc's "morning joe." adviser to obama 2012, david axelrod. chief foreign correspondent richard engel is here, safe and sound in
americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. >> ronald reagan gave the first inaugural address from the west front of the capitol. in doing so issued a manifesto of the area's conservative tide. >> in this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. >> but the most recent inaugural address was that given by barack obama. >> this is the price and the promise of citizen ship. this is the source of our confidence, the knowledge that god calls on us to shape and uncertain destiny. this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed, why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father who less than 60 years ago might not have been served in a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> wow. at its best, inaugural justice for a presidency, what a lead sentence does for a book. it captures the duration of what's to come. a great presidency often begins with a great statement. in the day that m
. in 1981, ronald reagan was nominated as the 40th president. the former california governor won the election against the incumbent, and at issue was the iran contra crisis, where americans were held for over 400 days after a group of islamic militants and students took over the embassy. as he was giving his inauguration address, the militants were being released. this is about 25 minutes. [applause] >> governor, are you prepared to take the constitutional oath? >> i am. >> raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear, that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states and will come to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states. so help you god. >> so help me, god. [applause] ♪ ["hail to the chief" plays] >> >> the president of the united states. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. senator hatfield, mr. justice, mr. president, vice president bush, vice president mondale, senator baker, speaker o'neill, reverend moomaw, and my fellow citizens, to a few of us here today this
ronald reagan used to confuse movies with reality. whatever happened to the right wing, conservative notion of law and order? here you have these sheriffs and state legislatures around the country, certain red states, saying we will arrest federal law enforcement officers if they enforce the law. the people who sometimes put their lives on the line to protect us. and we're talking about in such disregard. this is what happened back in the '90s when the same crowd was talking about jack buddha thugs and it led, in some ways, toward oklahoma city. this could be heading towards frightening times with this sort of rhetoric. >> let me say this. this is the anniversary year of the march on washington, dr. martin luther king, who his holiday will be on monday when the president is inaugurated. in the famous speech he made, i have a dream, he referred to a governor whose lips drifts with the words of interposition and nullification. that is the words that we're hearing dripping from lips today. interposition and nullification. maybe when they said the president was trying to be a king, maybe
? we'll talk about that. >>> we've been taking a look -- ronald reagan's second inauguration remain the coldest on record, believe it or not, if you're keeping track. for that reason, they took it indoors. we'll be right back. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> that i will faithfully executed -- >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> and will to the best of my ability -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> preserve, protect, and defend -- >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. britta olsen is my patient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just making her comfortable. one night britta told me about a tradition in denmark, "when a person dies,

ever at 135 words. he didn't really want another term. ronald reagan's second inaugural and speech were indoors. the temperature outside was only a few degrees above zero. there is one major historical exception to awe-inspiring second inaugural addresses. abraham lincoln's speech just weeks before he was assassinated. with the civil war about to end, lincoln urged the nation to unite as one, with malice toward none, with charity for all. let us strive on, he said, to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds. now, the speech president obama will give today, of course will lay out his vision for the country's future. he'll be talking about his hope that the partisan disagreements of washington won't keep the administration and congress from finding some common ground. there'll be more details on february 12th in the state of the union address. mr. obama may be meditating over what he's going to say as he heads from the white house across lafayette park in the next half hour for a prayer service at st. john's church. charlie, norah, gayle? >> bill p
for presidents often embroil presidents in scandal. ronald reagan had iran-contra, bill clinton had monica lewinsky. i'm partial to sex scandals. obviously i would never hope for that for our president. i would hope that nothing like that would ever consume his presidency. however, we do know that second terms are often a grab bag of congressional investigation. >> yeah. so how much time, maria, do you think the president will really have to focus on whichever issues, whatever order you want to look at them at, minus the scandals, we hope? how much time will he have to really get anything done? >> not a lot. we're already seeing a lot of movement and talk about the 2014 mid terms and how difficult it's going to be for either republicans to do what they need to do on immigration, for example, because the people in their districts don't want it. we're already seeing a lot of talk about how some of these issues will be difficult for democrats in red states who want to keep their seats in the senate. the president needs to do this now and republicans would be smart to do a lot of this now so t
a trail for a big winner. >> goldwater was the john the baptist figure for ronald reagan. the two of them together defined a modern american conservative >> i believe we are going to prevail. >> reporter: likewise, says brinkley 1972's democratic candidate george mcgovern, an opponent of the war in vietnam was ahead of his time. both candidates lost big. but today loom large. >> there is such thing as the goldwater-ite today. there is a mcgovern-ite >> reporter: still? still. there's no such thing as a gerry ford or a jimmer carter democrat. >> reporter: there are losers who went on to do big things. not necessarily things that we all like. >> well, yes. i'm thinking of john w. davis >> reporter: davis, the losing 1924 democratic candidate went on to argue the landmark brown versus board of education suit, the one that desegregated schools. but davis argued against integration. >> here's the guy that thinks that we still should have segregation. he doesn't go down well in history. >> reporter: some candidates were winners and losers. you know, there's always the inspiring grover cleveland
solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, with obama's second speech. >> reaffirmed, perhaps, even. >> luke, you've covered the hill. what was the hill's response, yesterday, to the president's speech, to the events of -- >> before president obama had even left the luncheon, there was a statement out from cathy mcmorris rodgers, number 4 in the house gop conference who basically said, okay, there's a lot of nice words in this speech, but we would like to see some literal action. and the literal action is persuading the senate to pass a budget so we can move forward on fiscal issues. so i think you'll see some folks on the republican side, say, it was a beautiful moment for their country. obviously, they'll understand the significance of having an african-american president sworn in for a second time. but today, there was a press conference at 5:00 p.m., which is the first time we heard from house speaker john boehner since december 21st. i'm sure that the
george w. bush, bill clinton, or ronald reagan? >> bill clinton. >> hmm. poor hoda. >> wait. she got $100? >> so tell us, he was the first? >> it was his second inauguration in 1997, and before you start thinking the white house was super internet savvy, bare in mind bill clinton sent a grand total of two emails during his eight years. >> are you kidding? >> not kidding. >> world has changed. back across to kath. >> chico and california. who elizabeth be one of the performers singing at president barack obama's second inauguration? beyouns yea, kelly clarkson, carly rae jepsen or james taylor. who went be there? >> carly rae jepsen. >> poor hodie. >> this is a bad day. >> you know what, hoda. i figured it out, though. they can take the money that they win and buy your book at barnes & noble. >> they can buy four books. okay. carly rae jepsen, the one. >> i guess he didn't call her maybe. >> girl, i thought you were going to go there. >> although others, james taylor will perform. >> james taylor is old hand at this. he performed at the dnc. beyonce has been a big obama performer. >> back
's mother, live with them in the white house. >> 800,000 is pretty good, more and then came out for ronald reagan, more than george w. bush. >> and it is the second inauguration, still larger than any other inauguration, except for his first. >> even with some of the disappointments, and the unfilled expectations, there is still a resonance, particularly with african-americans, the importance and significance of having barack obama as president. people are still coming out and supporting. we saw that last year in the election. 95% of african-americans voted for him. there is still a lot there attached to the meaning of having a first african-american becoming president of the united states. >> when you say you wish it would have been eight knowledge, the history of the building of this city, the nation's capital, washington, d.c., explain. >> psychologists tell us that acknowledging pain and suffering is a way to get past the trauma. until the country related knowledge as that this is part of the history -- we have had good parts of history but we have also had bad, and we should not prete
'll take it. remember it was ronald reagan in 1985 where festivities were actually canceled because the high was 17 degrees, and lower than that throughout the day. so this is pretty good. >> i got to say, it's kind of perfect. robin meade, don lemon and christi paul are along with us along the parade route. robin, i know you were out in the cold of the morning. a lot of people we saw, it's been a good day for hand warmers and body warmers. everybody going through security had them in their gloves and in their shoes and in their coats. >> they are the item of the day. i'll tell you that much. to give you an example of what people here went through, to get through security to go to the parade, to me it felt a little different than getting through security to get to the national mall. it feels more stringent here on the parade route, because if you look, see how close people are able to be to the parade route, compared to the blocks and the blocks on the mall. so when we went through security, they asked us -- it was very hands-on. they took away our diet soda cans. no cans allowed. t
